I wonder if you can start my story off. I have given you the ending below...
Suddenly the Rising Stars burst into the room and spring into action!
They manage to rescue the elephant from its cage using their super human strength to break it free.
As quick as a flash they use their teleporting powers to teleport the elephant to Africa.
Then they flew home to enjoy a nice hot chocolate with marshmallows. They lived happily ever after. 4 leaf clover my story is over.
I wonder who took the elephant? or did he escape?
Why did the Rising Stars help him?
Where is the story set?
What were the Rising Stars doing before this event happened?
Are there any other animals there?
Where did they find the elephant?
